MiCAT Planner software will write it instead&mdash;and write it much faster. It uses the same information that a programmer uses to write a measurement program. Available from Mitutoyo America, MiCAT goes directly from a CAD model containing product and manufacturing information to acquire tolerance data and locations for measurements.</span></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> CAD Mon, 23 Feb 2015 18:59:00 +0000 46671 at Additive Manufacturing 101 <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by Stratasys </div> <div class="node-body article-body">What is Additive Manufacturing?
